My heart went out to your family for the loss of David. I loss my mother over 10+ years ago. But I found comfort in these few scriptures. I hope they find comfort for you during this difficult time. Psalms 37:9,-11,29 9 For evil men will be done away with,j But those hoping in Jehovah will possess the earth.k 10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;l You will look at where they were, And they will not be there.m 11 But the meek will possess the earth,n And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance 29 The righteous will possess the earth,i And they will live forever on it.j Please look up these scriptures in your own copy of the Bible. It will give you confidence you will see David again under righteous condition where he is no longer sick but restored youth and healthy. If you enjoyed reading about this hope, you can read more of God's great plans for our future at www.jw.org Your neighbor, Jeanne Strange

To Derek and the entire Hurt family. Please accept my deepest sympathy for the passing of your dad, father uncle and friend Mr. Hurt. While I did not know him personally, I know he raised a fine young man in Derek. May God bring you peace and joy during this time. Mr. Hurt is certainly at peace now. God bless the entire family.
